“The main thing is that the person looks natural and comfortable with the way they are playing. I think a lot of people try too hard to be performers and it looks awkward. You don’t have to be headbanging all the time. The fact that I have this hair makes me look like I’m going all over the place. At the same time you don’t want someone back there barely tickling the drums.
"Put on a show in your own way. Everybody performs differently. In terms of physical image, I don’t think I necessarily fit the image of any of the bands that I’ve played in. I don’t think you’d look at me and think Nine Inch Nails and Paramore... certainly not Lostprophets. You just have to carry yourself comfortably. It’s easy to spot somebody who’s trying too hard, and then you instantly don’t buy it. I am who I am and that’s just that. Very neutral, dark colours work, nothing that stands out too much. Being genuine is the most important thing.”
